It's a Bombshell Blog Hop!

I'm back!  I told you I had a second post today, did you doubt me?  Okay, so I'm a bit unreliable ;D  You know what you CAN rely on?  A fabulous Bombshell Blog Hop the last Wednesday of every month.  Yes, that's right!  The monthly Bombshell Hop is back!  Our new hop mistress is the one and only fabulous Alison!  Let's have a big round of applause for her!!!

Alison has set a superb theme this go round and you are absolutely going to LOVE it!  I know I did!  Alison is asking everyone to Goth Up the Bombshells.  Yeah, I know.  Pretty great!

I decided on Butterfly Queen for my goth makeover and added some spiffy wings from the Sacred Heart set.  I colored her up with my Copics and tried to leave her skin pale by using only E000 and R20.  The grays are C7, C5, C3, C1 and C0.  I found a new red combo when I was perusing the Internet the other's R89, R39 and R37.  It's really deep and rich.

I made the metal heart all by myself.  Actually, I made it a while back, but was just waiting for the right project to add it to.  The bone colored skull was a gift from my BFF.  She picked up several strands of these skull beads for me at the Flea Market.  Now you see why she's my BFF.  She totally "gets" me...LOL!!!

Okay, enough yammering.  This is a blog hop and you have lots of stops along the way and tons of amazing art to see.  You better scoot... ;D  Here's the list, you should have arrived from Milo's fabulous blog and your next stop will be Stempelientje's blog where I'm sure she has something wonderful waiting for you.  Be sure and visit the Bombshell Blog and the Bombshell Shop / Forum every chance you get.  Lots of activity and a host of amazing projects waiting to be shared on a regular basis.  Until next time, stay crafty!
